A little over 2 years ago we got some very scary news; Chris was ill. Very ill.
( if you've missed it, you can read all about it here)
At the end of that summer the medication had done it's job and Chris got 'better' pretty quick.
Life picked itself up, back to work, school and sports. Eventhough we had to go to the hospital every 3 months for check ups, and it was emotionally very hard to go back there, we always got good news and could go home..
(knowing there are lots of sick children that are not able to go home...)
He turned 18!!! A big (reasonably) healthy young man!
His favorite hobby??
Riding the 'wheels' he got from the Make-a-Wish-Foundation.
It is a reminder of his granddad... Chris' leg is the one on the right, his father had his tattoo refreshed.
So far so good!!!
The cake is done by Zoet. I don't do cakes very well, best to leave that to the experts.

Soms is het zoiets kleins in je hoofd. Een idee. Dat er om schrééuwt om uitgevoerd te worden.. Uitstellen heeft geen zin, het moet. Ook al heb je eigenlijk geen tijd..
Het was tijd voor een zusje van Love on the Edge; klein, schattig, en delicaat..
It was about time to make this little sister of Love on the Edge; cute, small and delicate.
This little Shawlette makes perfect use of the characteristics of Shetland lace, that means you don't even have to knit 'all that you see..'. Besides, it takes only a few yards of each colour so if you have any leftovers from other lace shawls...
